    One perk about living in New York City is

    that you can order food at 2am and have it delivered to your apt! I just order me a Philly cheesesteak with an orange Fanta to drink. #Boss

    I embrace this. I am tired of being told I have

    to work at certain hours and get up at a certain time because that's what's socially acceptable. If other people don't get the magic of night time that's fine, more for the minority of us. Tired of being pc.

    the quiet. the lack of human interaction. its when i am calmest... but there is also a darker side (see what i did there? darker? ok never mind) night is when i finally let myself think. this is not a good thing but i am not oblivious enough to deny the fact i am self...

    I haven't gone to sleep yet,

    and it's 6:30 AM. Sleep is for the weak... and probably also for smart people.

    I'm also an insomniac.

    I'll be lucky to get 4 or 5 hours a night. I've gone 3 1/2 hours and still can fall asleep when I want to. I work the second shift as is and don't get off till midnight. While everyone is asleep I'm awake. Either chillin, cleaning, watching tv or reading. Takes me awhile to...

    My handle is 9 minute,

    because my attention span is that short. If you watch my little online yellow indicator balloon, you'll see that it winks on and off like a 9 minute pulsar sometimes. I check in and out a lot. I try to study, and then take a break. At night sometimes I sleep in intervals also...

    and awake most of the night. Sometimes I think my sleep schedule is messed up because I love London so much (London is awake at my night time and asleep by my night time) lol I'm such a Anglophile.

    This world is a mess.

    Full of hate, jealousy, resentment. We are killing, raping, hating and forcing. I wish I wasn't here. It is all fake. There will never be peace in this world and that makes so scared of this society. It's all about power and money.

    I think it's just how i was born.

    I sleep the day away, and party all night through. Oh, and by party I mean sit in my bed, posting blogs, doing online shopping, watching netflix, and eating twice my body weight. Being a night owl is a privilege.

    I love the tranquility of the nighttime.

    Everything just seems so peaceful. Sometimes I find myself sneaking out in the middle of the night just to go for a walk outside. (Only for my brother to blow up my phone texting me to come back inside) My favorite is when there's a full moon and it just kinda glows and lights...

    but thought I'd say hello. I think my days and nights are mixed up because I don't sleep at night. I've tried lots of things, but I still find myself awake all night. Like now it's almost 5 am. I'll be going to bed soon though.
